Abstract
Reanalyses of the data from the 1966 Great Lakes-Illinois River Basin Project (GLIRBP) of the (then) Federal Water Pollution Control Administration (FWPCA) reveal some of the large-scale, persistent summertime circulation patterns in Lake Huron. The greatest density of data from the original 45 current meter moorings covers June through August 1966, when some 21 stations returned synoptically-significant data from meters at depths of 10 and 15 m. From this somewhat sparse sample, it is deduced that at 10-m depth a counterclockwise circulation dominates the northern 2/3 of the lake. Spectral analysis of currents at individual stations reveals a strong inertial rotation of the current vector at open-lake sites.
